Antoine Griezmann to end Barcelona-Atletico Madrid transfer saga this week

Griezmann enjoyed another outstanding season for Atletico, leading them to Europa League success with two goals in the final.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has revealed his future will be decided in the next week as speculation mounts over a move to Barcelona. Barca hope to sign him on July 1, when his release clause drops to €100 million, while Atletico are trying to convince him to stay by offering an improved contract.

"I don't know what happened against the U.S., we prepared well".

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the U.S. in Lyon on Saturday night, but Griezmann reckons there's no need for his teammates to panic, and says their preparation for Australia starts now.

Griezmann is expected to play a key role in France's bid to win the World Cup for the first time since 1998, with Didier Deschamps' team one of the pre-tournament favourites to go all the way.

Manchester United had been interested in the forward last summer but missed out.

After facing the USA on Saturday in Lyon, France are due to fly to their training base near Moscow on Sunday.

This (the World Cup ) starts on Saturday, so it will be defined this week.

He was just your typical football mad seven-year old in awe of his idols in the flesh at the time, but Griezmann was already in his full kit, wearing the No.7 shirt - a number which he has worn with distinction ever since becoming France's main man.
